    Got tired of seeing the "Why No Post" thread in first place. So here's another to (hopefully) take its place.

    So, what would y'all think about a thread devoted to the World War II "6-inch fighting/utility knife"? If there's enough interest I'll dang-sure find and drag mine out for a picture-taking session.

    So, whaddaya think? Go, or fergeddaboutit?

    If you want to win an argument, it is best to stick to the truth.....or,at least, provable untruths.

    Okay, so its a go. I'll start pulling them out and dusting them off, etc. Hopefully pics will be up by next Friday.

    (Note to self. Remember to include the ones presently in the Kinfolks and Western Cutlery collections.)

    Okay -- the sun has come out again, so I can get the pics taken today. The very instant I agreed to do the pics, the sky clouded over and it began to rain like crazy.

    Southern California desperately needs the rain, but the timing could have been a wee bit better...

    Okay, here we go. These were first named as "Six-inch Fighting/Utility Knives" by Cole. Our own Frank T. has called them "Six-inch Hunting Knives." Either way, they have 6-inch single-edged blades and have similar overall profiles.

    All of Mine as a Group:


    Next come the three "Quartermaster" knives. The top one is the Cattaraugus, the middle one is marked "Case XX", and the bottom one has the simpler and much less common "Case" marking.


    The next two are also by Case. First is the rather rare double-edged Case, followed by the much-more-common "regular" Case.

    H-m-m-m. Got "bumped out" while creating this next entry. Here goes again:

    Ka-Bar "Commando" Knives. These handles are just about the most comfortable I've ever "handled". The top knife is obviously plated (sorry about that), and the blade has fullers. The bottom one is the much less common flatground (no fullers) parkerized version.



    Western Cutlery "Sharks" (3) and "Baby Shark" (1). Note that only the second one has a bright blade; the rest are blued. Also note that only one has the flat, washer pommel.



    Up next is a Robeson Shuredge 6-incher. I have another one around here somewhere...



    Kinfolks Cutlery. Note that the top one has no fullers -- rare. Also note that the second one has a plastic pommel and a plastic guard.



    The thing keeps crashing right about here, so I'm gonna quit (temporarily) while I can.

    Okay we're in the home stretch. Hopefully I can get through without having the thing crash on me again.

    Up next are three knives that are similar, but come from three manufacturers -- Queen City, Williams, and a "mystery-mark" that is a simple "S.C.C." They also sort-of resemble the Robeson Shuredge.



    And last but not least, the ubiquitous PAL RH-36 accompanied by a 6-inch Kutmaster and a 7-inch Kutmaster. (Yeah, I know, but I've got nowhere else to include it.)



    Well, that's it from partly-cloudy Casa Nighteyes, where the air temperature is 66 degrees.

    GREAT selection of knives Daniel!!!! I never realized there were so many variations. Could that one marked S.C.C. be Schrade Cutlery Co.? Sorry about your computer crashing.I was perusing this post when you were posting and I was having problems as well so it may not be your computer's fault.

    Many thanks for your perseverance in overcoming the forum/computer gremlins to put all that together.
    Most impressive!

    This was one of the last posts that Daniel Nighteyes made before his untimely passing.
    It is an example of the knowledge and intelligence that he brought to the forum. He is deeply missed.
    I'm glad that the recent disastrous loss of the forum's collective memory did not affect his posts.

    Can you identify your knives?
